Recordings on Khashoggi's death given to Saudis, US, Britain - Turkey

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in London on March 7

US President Donald Trump and his Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan discussed how to respond to the killing last month of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi, a White House official said on Sunday (Nov 11). He was speaking to reporters before flying to Paris for an global gathering to commemorate the end of World War I.

Last month, Saudi Arabia acknowledged that Turkish evidence indicated that the killing was premeditated, shifting its explanation in an apparent effort to ease global outrage over the death.

"The secretary emphasised that the United States will hold all of those involved in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi accountable, and that Saudi Arabia must do the same", spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement.

A Turkish official said last week that Saudi Arabia sent two people, a chemist and a toxicologist, to Istanbul a week after Khashoggi's October 2 killing to erase evidence, calling it a sign that top Saudi officials knew of the crime.

"There's no need to distort this issue, they know for certain that the killer, or the killers, is among these 15 people".

Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post, disappeared on October 2 after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul to receive paperwork he needed to get married.

But the existence of such a recording had not been officially confirmed.

However, the Queen wasn't entirely sure where that specific piece had come from so she urged Meghan to go for something different. A small black hat was propped on the right-hand side of Meghan's head, and small silver stud earrings were spotted in her ears.

Khashoggi, a journalist and critic of Saudi Arabia's government, was killed after visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain a marriage license last month.

On Saturday, Turkish newspaper Sabah reported the killers of Khashoggi poured his remains down the drain after dissolving him in acid.

Last week, Saudi Arabia told the United Nations' top human rights body that it was investigating the murder of Khashoggi at its Istanbul consulate last month with a view to prosecuting the perpetrators.

The Turkish chief prosecutor said 10 days ago that Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the Saudi consulate, as part of a premeditated plan, and his body dismembered.

According to Kerman, the Saudi entourage covered the floor with plastic bags before dismembering Khashoggi's body - a 15-minute process that was led by Salah al-Tubaigy, head of the Saudi Scientific Council of Forensics.

Turkish authorities are ending the search for the journalist's body believed to have been dissolved in acid, Al Jazeera reported on Saturday, quoting Turkish sources. Saudi state media said King Salman sacked Qahtani and four other officials over the killing.

Saudi Arabia now acknowledges that Khashoggi was intentionally killed in the building and says it has arrested 18 people.
